In the Bayou

Just finished making this bayou style devil net. I used sticks with moss and lichen to give it a prominent green color. Adding spanish moss and animal bones makes this devil net have a much stronger voodoo vibe than typically seen in any devil nets throughout the True Detective series.

Mothman cometh

Going to make a voodoo doll/effigy based on the Mothman. Not sure what materials I want to make it from or how I'm actually going to make it. Maybe I'll watch the Mothman Prophecies again and get some inspiration...

Devil Nets, Traps, and Snares

Thought I would share some of the devil nets I've made. This style of lattice works and stick tee-pees was made popular in the HBO series True Detective, which I became instantly addicted to. In the series they are said to trap the devil or other evil spirits. I make these using various natural materials including tree roots, sticks, and vines.

Lo Pan cosplay

Big Trouble in Little China. This movie never gets old for me. By far one of Carpenter's best films that has some interesting characters, especially David Lo Pan. I've thought about making Lo Pan's costume for the longest time, but cost and other obstacles keep me from pursuing it further. But which version of Lo Pan would I make? As Jack Burton says, "Little old basket case on wheels or the ten foot tall roadblock." It's a tough decision either way but both would have their challenges. 

The tall version of Lo Pan in his ceremonial garb has several obstacles. The most difficult task would be recreating the silk robe. Finding the right material might be next to impossible.  His pale face and facial hair would be achieved with makeup, although I don't have much experience in the makeup department. I could see making the hat myself. Getting some short stilts to reach his tall stature would be pretty easy also.

The wheelchair-bound Lo Pan has its challenges also. The hardest is achieving the old man look. The easiest but most expensive solution would be to have a custom silicone mask made. The withered hands could be done cheaply with latex and makeup or the more expensive route made with silicone. His clothing is a general looking suit and tie which would be simple to assemble. Old man Lo Pan is married to his wheelchair so I'd have to track one of those down. Sitting down makes you look smaller anyway but I wonder if my 6 foot tall frame would still look to big even in a wheel chair.

I think cosplaying either character would be a fun challenge. If I ever get serious about this character I will have some major decisions to make. I can imitate Lo Pan's voice very well so that is one thing I don't have to worry about ;) "INDEED!"
